Added a new cd-rw, followed the PET, but get this when I mount it:
mount: /dev/cdrom is not a valid block device

Now before this I accidently deleted the entire /dev/cdrom directory. So /dev/cdrom wasn't a block device - just a regular file. Now I tried making a new block device file (/dev/cdrom) with the mknod command. But when I link em:
ln -s /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom
ln: `/dev/cdrom': File exists
arggg this is frustrating. Ive done this before but now it's being a bitch because I deleted the original /dev/cdrom file (and I dont have a /dev/cdrom1). Need some help...
